  In this study we investigated temporal patterns in activity of adult macro-moths in Colo-i-Suva mixed lowland tropical forest on Fiji's largest island, Viti Levu. Moths were collected for 2 or 3 nights per month over a month period using a mercury-vapor light as an attractant and collecting moths that had settled onto a white sheet for 4 hr after dusk. In total 1, specimens were captured. tree species composition, diversity and biomass estimation in lower montane forest at fraser s hill, pahang, peninsular malaysia Shamsul, K., Nik Norafida, N.

Lower montane forest occurs above m to about m above sea level; however, in small mountains or hills near the sea, the limit is much lower. The montane forest from m - m is also called upper hill dipterocarp forest because of a certain number of dipterocarp trees that dominate the forest canopy, of which the tall dipterocarp.   Some primary-forest birds can use older plantations of exotic trees that allow secondary growth (Mitra and Sheldon ) or traditional agroforests that are diverse and structurally complex (Thiollay ); however, species richness and diversity are still lower than in primary forest. Similarly, the successional vegetation that results from.

In this study, we quantified the conservation value, for f Conservation value of degraded habitats for forest birds in southern Peninsular Malaysia - Peh - - Diversity and Distributions - .   Clearance of tropical forest for agricultural purposes is generally assumed to seriously threaten the survival of forest species. In this study, we quantified the conservation value, for forest bird species, of three degraded habitat types in Peninsular Malaysia, namely rubber tree plantations, oil palm plantations, and open areas.

In an effort to collect all the information of biological diversity from the natural habitats of the country, Forestry Department Peninsular Malaysia (FDPM) had organised series of Forest Biodiversity Scientific Expedition in forested areas especially the Permanent Reserved Forests (PRFs).

The Peninsular Malaysian Montane Rain Forests [IM] are one of the last refuges for several of Asia's large characteristic species. These forests still support tigers, Asian elephants, gaur, tapirs, Sumatran rhinoceros, and the spectacular and endemic crested argus.

Taman Negara Nature Reserve in. Montane diversity hotspots, localities with rare species, and potential sites with suitable habitats for Utricularia were targeted.

An empirical commonness category was formulated based on the distribution of each species in Peninsular Malaysia, its adaptability to disturbance and collection frequency that indicates rarity (Table 3).

The two Author: Noorma Wati Haron, Ming Yee Chew. Taking m elevation as the approximate lower limit of upper montane cloud forest occurrence in Malaysia, % of the total land area of the country may be considered to be potentially covered.

The extent of protected montane forests should also be contiguous with primary lowland forests to meet the habitat requirements of altitudinal migrants. For example, Kimura et al. () observed that lowland frugivores in Sabah, Malaysia seasonally migrate to montane forests during the non-fruiting period in the lowlands since the former has a Cited by: Yap SY, Ong HT.

A month camera-trapping study ( camera-days) was done in Gunung Ledang Johor National Park on the southern Malay Peninsula from July to October Six video images of the endangered Sumatran serow, Capricornis sumatraensis (Bovidae, Cetartiodactyla), were obtained.

This is the first confirmation of a wild population of the species on the southern Malay Peninsula. Serows. Bioengineering designs have great potential and application in Malaysia because in deforested upland sites, landslides are common, particularly during the wetter months between November and January.

Malaysia, in Southeast Asia, includes a portion both of the Malay Peninsula and the island of Borneo. The country is one of the world's great centers of biodiversity.

Its richest habitats are rain. Malaysia is party to many global conventions and regional treaties/conventions that contribute to the conservation of species and ecosystems, including the Convention on Biological Diversity. By fully meeting its obligations under these agreements, Malaysia's biodiversity will be more assured.

Malaysia is comprised of several individual states and some federal territories spread between two large land areas. Peninsular Malaysia is home to 11 states and two territories, while East Malaysia is made up of two large states (Sarawak and Sabah) and one federal management started in Malaysia as early as the s, and it has since improved and refined the system to.

The richness of the flora is further underlined in some studies made in recent years. For example, in Pasoh Forest Reserve with a lowland dipterocarp forest, species in genera and 78 families were enumerated from a 50 ha plot of all trees ≥ 1 cm diameter at breast height (Kochummen et al, ).The plot contained 76 species of trees known to bear edible fruit (Saw et al, ).

Anon (a) National policy on biological diversity. Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment. A study was conducted to determine the species composition, diversity and biomass of Kapur (Dryobalanops aromatica Gaertn.f.) dominated forests in Peninsular Malaysia.

Three forests were selected in different geographical zones, namely Bukit Bauk Virgin Jungle Reserve (BBVJR), Terengganu, Lesong Forest Reserve (LFR), Pahang and Gunung Belumut Recreational Forest. The higher values of the diversity indices revealed a forest with high tree species diversity and abundance (Adekunle et al ).

Shannon–Weiner values for tree species diversity in the present study (–) ranged between 0. 81 and (Visalakshi,Sahu et al.,Sundarapandian and Swamy, ). We report here the first study on the impact of forest conversion to oil palm on overall arthropod abundance, biomass and composition.

We compared arthropod abundance and biomass, collected from epiphytic bird's nest ferns, the canopy, and leaf litter between primary forest, logged forest and oil.

A comprehensive survey on large mammal diversity from a disturbed forest in Peninsular Malaysia has been carried out for over a period of 21 months. A total of 24 camera traps which accumulated to trap days.

A total of 33 species 27 genera and 15 families of mammals were recorded via camera trapping and observations. The use of camera traps provides detailed information on diversity .The study was conducted at Ngel Nyaki Forest Reserve to capture the tree species composition, diversity and richness in a Nigerian montane forest ecosystem, and to compare same between a protected natural forest - Main Forest (MF), and unprotected forest fragments (A, B, and C) within the buffer zone.

Vegetation sampling was carried out using.
